LONDON — Britain began offering coronavirus vaccinations to anyone over 45 on Tuesday after hitting its target of giving at least one dose to everyone over 50 by the middle of April. Despite the good news, Prime Minister Boris Johnson warned that the U.K. would inevitably see “more hospitalization and deaths” as it emerges from lockdown. On Monday, non-essential shops, hairdressers, gyms, restaurant patios and beer gardens reopened in England. Days before its self-imposed April 15 deadline, the government said everyone in its top priority groups — over 50s, health care workers and people with serious medical conditions — had been offered a jab, and about 95% of them received one. More than 32 million people, over 60% of the country's adults, have had a first shot and almost 15% of adults have gotten both doses. Vaccine eligibility was expanded Tuesday to people ages 45-49, the start of the second phase of the inoculation campaign. The government aims to give everyone over 18 at least one dose by July 31. The move came the day after some lockdown rules in place for more than three months were lifted. Relieved residents flocked to areas such as London’s Soho nightlife district, where tables were packed into narrow streets that had been closed to traffic. Politicians and scientists tried to temper the euphoria at the return of some freedoms with a warning that the virus still poses a major threat. Britain has had Europe’s deadliest coronavirus outbreak, with more than 127,000 confirmed deaths. A combination of rapid vaccination and lockdown has sharply decreased its infection and mortality rates. “Of course the vaccination program has helped, but the bulk of the work in reducing the disease has been done by the lockdown,” Johnson said. “So as we unlock, the result will inevitably be that we will see more infection. Sadly, we will see more hospitalization and deaths. People have just got to understand that," he said. Several of Britain’s neighbours, including France, have imposed new lockdown curbs as virus cases soar. Chris Hopson, chief executive of health service organization NHS Providers, agreed there were “good reasons to be cautious” about Britain's pandemic trajectory. “We need to be really careful about assuming we’re on a one-way, inexorable, inevitable track to it all being fantastic and we can go back to normal, because actually we’ll need a new normal,” Hopson said. The pace of Britain's vaccination drive has slowed in recent weeks, with the number of first doses falling sharply as the campaign focuses on delivering second shots. Like many other countries, Britain is also receiving fewer doses than it had hoped for, partly as a result of India’s decision to stop exports of the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine from its Serum Institute. The U.K.’s inoculation effort so far has used the AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine and one made by Pfizer-BioNTech. Britain has also ordered 17 million doses of a vaccine made by American pharmaceutical company Moderna, with the first batches arriving earlier this month. The Moderna doses will be given primarily to younger people, following Britain’s decision last week not to give the AstraZeneca jab to individuals under 30 because of strengthening evidence it may be linked to rare blood clots. Adam Finn, a member of the U.K.’s Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunization, said the vaccine campaign so far meant that “we’re halfway up the hill.” “We’ve certainly got an important job to do to communicate the importance of the vaccination program to younger people,” Finn told Sky News. “They perhaps have less fear of this disease than older people quite understandably have had, but nevertheless I think people can be helped to understand that the ultimate exit from this catastrophe involves building up immunity in the population.” Health authorities are also concerned about new variants that are more resistant to vaccines. They are calling for everyone living or working in two boroughs of south London to get tested after 44 cases of a strain first identified in South Africa were confirmed there. ___ Follow AP’s pandemic coverage at: https://apnews.com/hub/coronavirus-pandemic https://apnews.com/hub/coronavirus-vaccine https://apnews.com/UnderstandingtheOutbreak Jill Lawless, The Associated Press

(Bloomberg) -- Ukraine and Russia ratcheted up their rhetoric as U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken arrived in Brussels to discuss the escalating tensions with his European partners.Meeting with NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said Russia, which has amassed tens of thousands troops near the two nations’ border, is threatening to destroy his country. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Russia poses no threat and urged Ukraine’s Western allies to stop it carrying out “provocative actions.”The region is on edge over a Russian military buildup in recent weeks around the conflict that began after President Vladimir Putin annexed Crimea in 2014. With Putin’s intentions unclear, the fear is that even a low-level skirmish could reignite more serious fighting. The war over the status of two breakaway regions in Ukraine’s east has already cost more than 13,000 lives.“Russia has to understand that Ukraine belongs to the world of democracies, to the Western world -- this is the very clear message NATO can send to Russia,” Kuleba said. “Ukraine isn’t part of the Russian world and will never be considered as such.”NATO joined the Group of Seven nations and the European Union in calling for Russia to de-escalate.“These large-scale troop movements, without prior notification, represent threatening and destabilizing activities,” G-7 and the EU said. “We call on Russia to cease its provocations and to immediately de-escalate tensions.”Blinken warned at the weekend of consequences if Russia acts recklessly or aggressively. The Kremlin, which accuses its neighbor of planning a new military offensive to regain control of the Russian-speaking Donbas region, called the U.S.’s deployment of warships to the nearby Black Sea “extremely provocative.”“Any threat only reinforces our conviction that we’re conducting the right policy,” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said. “We’re just defending our interests and the interests of our citizens, the Russian-speaking population.”Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu later said Russia’s actions are also a response to “threats” by NATO, which Ukraine hopes to join. He did, however, hint at an easing of tensions to come, saying some military readiness checks will end in the next two weeks.Dmitri Trenin, director of the Carnegie Moscow, said the “war scare” is likely over, but that frayed nerves may remain for some time. “The high level of tension in the region is now the new normal,” he said Tuesday in a report.Ukraine rejects suggestions it’s planning an offensive and is urging more Western sanctions growing if Putin makes a move to tighten control over the breakaway regions.Meanwhile, diplomacy continues to avoid a resumption of the large-scale fighting a 2015 peace accord ended.Before Blinken met Kuleba Tuesday, he promised discussions this week on Ukraine’s “Euro-Atlantic aspirations,” reaffirming the U.S. “stands firmly behind” the country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.In Berlin, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin told his opposite number that the U.S. will station an additional 500 troops in Germany -- a message “that we support NATO in the fullest extent.”But without the prospect of a Western military response, Russia won’t be deterred from moving against Ukraine, according to James Sherr, a senior fellow at the International Centre for Defence and Security in Tallinn, Estonia, who’s advised governments on Russia’s defense strategy.“Sanctions don’t offer any significant deterrent,” he said. “The incentive to use military force rises when they perceive their opponent is weak and there’s no one standing behind them.”Concern over fresh sanctions did manage to send the ruble to its lowest level against the dollar since November last week. Ukrainian assets suffered too: the yield on the government’s dollar bond due 2026 reached its highest since November.(Updates with Russian defense minister, analyst, Blinken starting in ninth paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
(Bloomberg) -- U.S. stock futures steadied alongside bonds as investors assessed the latest inflation reading in the world’s largest economy.Contracts on the S&P 500 erased losses that followed news the U.S. recommended pausing Johnson & Johnson vaccines amid health concerns. Consumer prices rose more than expected last month but investors speculated the acceleration was not fast enough to warrant any Federal Reserve policy change. That kept Treasury yields largely in place.J&J shares fell in premarket trade as officials started an investigation into a link from its shot to rare and severe blood clots, while rivals Moderna Inc. and Pfizer Inc. advanced.“This is a setback and it’s going to make people nervous,” Sebastien Page, a multi-asset strategist at T. Rowe Price, said in an interview on Bloomberg Television. “But the destination is Covid off. We’ve had 100 million doses already so in our portfolios we remain positioned for the recovery trade.”Fund managers across the world now see inflation, a taper tantrum and higher taxes as bigger risks than Covid-19, according to the latest Bank of America Corp. survey.Although policymakers at the Federal Reserve expect a bump in consumer prices to be short-lived, many traders disagree, with fears of faster CPI playing out across duration-heavy assets from bonds to tech stocks.The Treasury plans to auction 30-year bonds Tuesday after sales of three- and 10-year notes attracted decent demand Monday.Meanwhile, Bitcoin jumped to an all-time high as the mood in cryptocurrencies turned bullish before Coinbase Global Inc. goes public.

(Bloomberg) -- An Egyptian court allowed the ship that blocked the Suez Canal last month to be seized after a request from the waterway’s operator, which is demanding $900 million in compensation, according to local media.A court in the city of Ismailia granted the request regarding the Ever Given vessel at the behest of the Suez Canal Authority, state-run Ahram Gate reported on its website. The report did not say who the SCA wants compensation from.The move underscores the legal complications following the container vessel’s grounding on March 23, which led to the canal being closed for almost a week and roiled shipping markets. Logjams are expected to continue in the coming weeks at major ports such as Singapore and Rotterdam because of disruptions to schedules, according to supply-chain data provider project44.The SCA has said compensation is needed to cover losses of transit fees, damage to the waterway during the dredging and salvage efforts, and the cost of equipment and labor. It has calculated that it missed out on about $15 million of transit fees each day.Calls placed to the SCA weren’t answered.A spokesman for the Ever Given’s owner, Japan-based Shoei Kisen Kaisha Ltd., declined to comment on compensation while discussions with the SCA are underway. The company said the crew is still on board the ship, which is now in the Great Bitter Lake, about halfway along the canal.The charterer, Taiwan’s Evergreen Marine Corp., said in an email it hadn’t received any information from the ship’s owner about a court order.(Updates with comment from Evergreen.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
NEW YORK — Backed by an international concert hosted by Selena Gomez and headlined by Jennifer Lopez, Global Citizen is unveiling an ambitious campaign to help medical workers in the world’s poorest countries quickly receive COVID-19 vaccines. The anti-poverty organization is announcing the musical event — “VAX Live: The Concert to Reunite the World” — with the goal of enlisting corporations and philanthropists to raise $22 billion for global vaccinations. The concert, which airs May 8 on ABC, CBS and FOX as well as on iHeartMedia radio stations and YouTube, will also showcase the Foo Fighters, Eddie Vedder, J Balvin and H.E.R. The acts will be recorded at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles. Ahead of the event, Hugh Evans, CEO of Global Citizen, highlighted the magnitude of the problem his organization aims to address. "There are 27 million healthcare workers globally who don’t have access to the vaccine,” Evans told The Associated Press. “I’m 38 years old, and it’s not ethical for me to have access to the vaccine before these heroic first responders and community health workers. So we need governments to start urgently donating those doses.” The Global Citizen program is among of a growing web of nonprofits and activists that are seeking to achieve wider, more equitable distribution of COVID-19 vaccines. As of this month, Evan said, 60 nations had still not yet received any COVID-19 vaccines. “Low-income countries not only need this welcome fundraising effort; they need access to COVID-19 vaccine doses,” Tom Hart, the North American executive director of another non-profit, The ONE Campaign, said last month. “The United States has secured over 550 million excess doses that could be used to help end the global pandemic faster.” A week later, Gayle Smith, The ONE Campaign’s president and CEO, was selected by the Biden Administration for the new State Department position of co-ordinator of global COVID response and health security. Global Citizen, which normally focuses on fighting severe poverty, became involved with COVID-19 vaccines out of what it calls necessity. “We can’t get back to ending extreme poverty while 150 million people have been pushed back into extreme poverty this year due to the pandemic,” Evans said. “Everything else is academic until we can get it under control.” The advocacy organization last year developed what it calls “ A Recovery Plan for the World,” which it hopes will simultaneously address COVID-19, the climate crisis, hunger and education issues, as well as racial equity. Under that plan, Global Citizen secured $1.5 billion in commitments from the Group of Seven industrialized democracies. Eventually, though, it recognized that greater awareness and funding were needed. “We decided we needed to bring the world together again with a global event that will unite world leaders, artists, philanthropists and CEOs,” Evans said. As he described it, “VAX Live” will be the first globally televised effort to lobby world leaders to help achieve more equitable vaccine distribution. The event is also intended to raise commitments for the billions of dollars that are needed to send 2 billion vaccine doses, in addition to COVID-19 tests, to the world’s poorest countries by year's end. “This is not ‘Mission Accomplished’,” Evans said. “But there is light at the end of the tunnel if we can ensure that there is equitable distribution of the vaccine.” Global Citizen wants the health care workers in every country in the world to receive a vaccine by the end of 2021, a year ahead of current plans. “By June, the U.S. government will have 45 million doses in excess of their entire population being vaccinated just sitting there in cold storage and warehouses,” Evans said. “That seems absolutely insane for something that’s for the common good to be sitting in cold storage.” On Tuesday, Global Citizen also launched its “Vax Because” initiative to encourage people to get vaccinated when they can. The program will include advertising developed by The Ad Council, YouTube and others to spark conversations among those who are hesitant about being vaccinated. “If people will see their friends and relatives taking it, they’re far more likely to take it,” Evans said. “If people think about what taking the vaccine actually does in terms of reuniting their friends and family, they’re far more likely to take it.” To Evans, Gomez is an ideal host to press those points to the people who needed to hear them the most. “Selena Gomez is obviously an incredible leader in her own right,” he said. “She has one of the largest social followings on the planet, and she also is a true leader among young people and in the Latinx community.” Gomez, for her part, said she felt honoured to be chosen. “This is a historic moment to encourage people around the world to take the COVID-19 vaccine when it becomes available to them, call on world leaders to share vaccine doses equitably and to bring people together for a night of music in a way that hasn’t felt possible in the past year," the “Lose You to Love Me” singer said in a statement. "I can’t wait to be a part of it.” For years, Global Citizen has used the power of celebrities’ connections with their fans to create a movement of “collective action” that shows government leaders how popular certain programs can be. Its annual Global Citizen Festivals in Central Park have furthered its goals of eliminating extreme poverty by 2030 with the help of fans of Beyonce or Coldplay or Stevie Wonder speaking out to world leaders on social media. The group hopes to do it again with “VAX Live.” “I think growing up, we were all taught what I would call ‘the Sally Struthers view of charity — if I just give a few dollars here and there, that will make a difference’,” Evans said. “Not only is that methodology not scalable, but it’s really just crumbs off the table. It’s not going to give anyone a meal. It’s not going to build any long-term sustainability. We believe in the power of ‘collective action’ because we know that we’re trying to change the systems that keep people poor.” ____ The Associated Press receives support from the Lilly Endowment for coverage of philanthropy and nonprofits.

Kyruus announces partnership with athenahealth to enable seamless online provider search and scheduling self-service capabilities for health systems
TORONTO, April 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Waverley Resources Ltd. (“Waverley”) is pleased to announce that it has acquired the Lauder copper-gold project located 40 km south of Kamloops in south-central British Columbia and the Tin City tungsten-silver-lead-zinc project located approximately 90 km north of Kaslo in south-eastern British Columbia. The 867-hectare Lauder property is largely till covered and was acquired based on Geoscience BC data releases including an airborne gravity survey, historical soil geochemical mobile metal ion (“MMI”) results, as well as RGS data that indicates the potential for buried copper-gold mineralization in the area. The 965-hectare Tin City property comprises an extensive amphibolite unit that host scheelite-bearing skarn lenses and horizons, as well as a number of reported historic mining shafts and several open cuts made on a sedimentary package hosting quartz veins with pyrite, pyrrhotite, sphalerite and galena. Work by Newmont Exploration of Canada Limited in 1984-85 included geochemical soil, silt and rock chip surveys, a magnetometer survey, trenching and 794 metres of diamond drilling in 13 holes. In 2008, Roca Mines Inc. drilled two additional drill holes into the amphibolite unit. During 2007 through 2009, Braveheart Resources Canada Inc. completed programs of prospecting and geochemical sampling in the area and in 2011 completed an airborne geophysical survey over a portion of the current Tin City property. Both projects were acquired through an internal staking program and are 100% owned by Waverley.
